These agreements can be included in any software application developed regardless of the platform used: computers, iPhones, iPads, Xboxes, etc. They are also called software licensing agreements. An end-user license agreement covers not only the resale or copying of the software, but also its use. Sometimes there is a liability clause for the restriction if the product harms the computer or device on which it is downloaded. If a CLA is agreed and contains a liability clause, the software buyer cannot sue the creator if the program knocks down the computer. An end-user license agreement is a legal contract between the manufacturer and/or author and end user of an application. Specifically, it is a contract between a product licensee and a licensee. This license agreement is used for most software. Because software is a form of intellectual property (IP), a C.A.B.A. promotes other developments by protecting the rights of software creators.
Although these agreements are often filled with legal language that many cannot read with patience, they are quite linear.
